In this view across the Kyle of Tongue, the ancient massif of Ben Hope looms large on the western horizon, the snow adding extra grandeur to its ice-eroded 3040 feet. Closer to hand, the ruin of the small but dramatically situated Castle Varrich continues to tease with the uncertainties of its origins; a Mackay stronghold, perhaps, or does it really date back to the time of the Vikings? In the fields below the castle, the substantial stone house of Dun Varrich stands on surer foundations, being built in 1894 by Orkney entrepreneur, Robert Garden. In the years since then, it has provided accommodation for the managers and owners of Burrs Store in Tongue. The bare trees and muted colours speak of winter cold, but the golden glow of low sunshine on the fields below the castle reflect the promise of the coming spring and summer. Everything comes in its season, and even the bleakest periods pass.
